Advisors

You must have an advisor willing to accept you as a student to pursue a PhD in nursing. Please see our current list of advisors accepting students.

International applicants are not required to secure a faculty advisor prior to submitting their application. After the application is reviewed, international applicants will be contacted with a list of potential faculty advisors.

If you are interested in pursuing a graduate degree under the mentorship of a faculty researcher not listed, you are welcome to contact that faculty member directly to inquire about potential graduate positions.

Please review the researcher’s profile prior to contacting them, to ensure your research interest aligns with theirs. When you decide to contact a faculty member regarding a graduate position, please send them the following:

  • Curriculum vitae or resume
  • All academic transcripts from previous post-secondary institutions as well as the University of Manitoba (as applicable)
  • Descriptions of any previous research or teaching-related experience.

If you have contacted potential advisors and after several inquiries have not received a response, please consider this an indication that they will not be pursuing further conversation.

Applicants can also contact the Graduate Program Student Advisor at nursing@umanitoba.ca for more information about advisors.

The student-advisor relationship

In collaboration, the student and faculty advisor will discuss the student’s learning needs to determine the fit between advisor and student. The advisor will work with the student to devise a plan for their course of studies. Generally, the advisor will be the student’s thesis/committee chair or comprehensive examination chair. Students must meet, at a minimum, annually with their advisor. Any changes to program plan must be approved by the advisor.

The student-advisor relationship is important in assisting the student to navigate the university system. Students are responsible for initiating and maintaining regular communication with their advisor.

Students are also responsible for understanding and knowing the Faculty of Graduate Studies policies and regulations, as well as the Supplemental Regulations, which provide the guidelines for graduate study.

Admission requirements

To qualify for admission to the PhD in Nursing program, you must have a minimum of:

  • A master’s degree, preferably in nursing. Other qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Completion of these three courses (9 credit hours) or equivalent:
    • NURS 7320: Philosophy of Nursing Science
    • NURS 7210: Qualitative Research Methods
    • NURS 7220: Quantitative Research Methods

Exceptional Master of Nursing (MN) students from the University of Manitoba who wish to apply to the PhD program before completing the MN program must have completed the above three courses as well as NURS 7340: Evidence Informed Practice (for a total of 12 credit hours).

Students in the PhD in Nursing program will receive approval for admission based on their prior academic and professional performance, research focus, demonstrated leadership and clear readiness to engage in the program. There is an expectation that the students are sufficiently self-directed to pace themselves within the course requirements and time-to-completion policies.

In addition to the admission requirements described here, all applicants must meet the minimum admission and English language proficiency requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

International applicants are not required to secure a faculty advisor prior to submitting their application. After the application is reviewed, international applicants will be contacted with a list of potential faculty advisors.

The Graduate Studies Committee in the College of Nursing reviews all applications, but final approval rests with the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Program admission is on a competitive basis and submission of the above requirements in no way guarantees program acceptance.
